Survivor 42 is back with an all-new episode following the merge (finally) of the new cast.

We are fresh off the dramatic two-hour episode of Survivor, where the Hourglass Twist resurfaced, but it’s time to head back to Fiji for the first post-merge episode of the season.

On Wednesday night (April 20), Survivor fans will get to see what the final 11 castaways are up to, now that there is just one tribe left on the show. And the TV promo hints at a lot of drama.

We are heading toward the season finale at a very quick pace now. Survivor 42 seems expedited due partially to the 26-day production length, which is shorter than usual.

It has certainly ramped up the excitement, and there is a lot of drama left to come before the show reveals the winner.

Below is the TV promo that CBS is running for the Survivor 42 episode, which will debut on Wednesday, April 20. Wednesday’s show will be the eighth episode for the Spring 2022 season, which was filmed in Fiji this past summer.

“Castaways are officially merged into one tribe; Individual Immunity is on the line; castaways try to negotiate with Jeff to get four days’ worth of rice for their tribes,” reads the synopsis for the Survivor 42 episode called You better Be Wearing a Seatbelt.
